I was told of this place via a friend who raved about it. I was not disappointed. Not a very large place which makes it more personal. First thing I noticed was its cleanliness. The decor was pleasing too. Service was very friendly. There was four of us in our party. Two ordered pulled pork and fries (girls) and two... More

Off the beaten path. Definitely worth finding. We both ordered pulled pork sandwiches and a side of fries. Some of the best fries ever. Pork was moist and really did not need sauce, however the sauce was very good. Service and as fast.

This restaurant is a hidden gemstone. It may not have a flashy outside or a glamourous inside, but the food speaks for itself. I've just had the best pulled pork sandwich North of the Mason-Dixon Line. I went out on the internet to find the best BBQ Ribs in Harrisburg and thankfully found reviews for this restaurant. I went to... More

I was in the area for the weekend, and we decided to try out this place since we enjoy ribs and BBQ. Our meal was great! It wasn't the best barbeque I have ever had, but it was better than I was expecting. (Union Pig & Chicken in Pittsburgh, PA and Dinosaur Barbeque in the NY area are my favorite... More

When we walked in we were pleasantly greeted and after we told the young lady that we had never been there she was great to explain what they were known for. My... More

Pulled pork is great and the fries too. We like to buy the pulled pork and take home in containers and use our own buns and eat in the comforts of home. Have been here many times and will continue to go back.

There is honestly no words to explain how AMAZING the food and service was. This was by far the best homemade BBQ I've ever had!

As locals, we know that this is the best bbq and pulled pork in central PA. Consistent in taste and quality given we've gone there about 15 times in the last 2yrs. When my son came home from college, he chose this place for his birthday dinner.

I was so hungry for ribs when on a business trip in Harrisburg. I wanted a quiet out of the way place and I was not disappointed! The ribs just fell off the bone. Perfectly cooked! The Cole slaw was so creamy and just sweet enough. If BBQ is your thing, then this is the place for you. I will... More
